Posted By Josh Trout, Monday, December 11, 2017

Registration is now open for the OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach Course to be held at IAMU on January 24th & 25th.

This course will explain OSHA’s role in worker safety and health, jobsite hazard recognition, correction and prevention methods and how to read the OSHA standards. Participants will receive a completion card from the U.S. Department of Labor OSHA certifying successful completion of this OSHA 10-Hour course. 29 CFR 1926 CFR Book & course material furnished.

Topics Covered:

  • Introduction to OSHA
  • Electrical Hazards
  • Fall Protection
  • Caught-In and Struck-by Hazards
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Health Hazards in Construction

Who Should Attend:
This basic safety course is recommended for workers and supervisors, or those who have been given the task of developing and managing their employer’s safety program.

A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to attendees.

If you hire Contractors: Many cities also require their contractors to maintain a safety program to be eligible to work for them. The OSHA 10-Hour course will help those owners, managers, and employees develop a solid safety foundation at their company to hopefully avoid incidents while working for the city or utility. Hiring a contractor to perform work for the city/utility does not eliminate all liabilities to the city.
